Brown Thrasher at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

I made a short stop at Sandy Point this morning, in hope that the sunrise would improve, but it didn’t get any better.

It’s just as easy to go to the Eastern Shore as anywhere else at that point, so I headed for Terrapin. I did manage one warbler, but I’m still not seeing any large numbers.

CBEC was next, and ┬áit wasn’t bad. I found out how badly you can get stuck in the mud if you venture too far out in the marsh wearing big boots.
